The Technical Expert Advisory Model (TEAM) approach at Perkins is our collaborative methodology that draws on nearly 200 years of expertise. Together with you, we design tailor-made solutions to put your program, staff and leadership development on the path to excellence in education for children with multiple disabilities.
Model programs provide top-quality services and play an important role in expanding services by demonstrating best practices and showing others what is possible for children with multiple disabilities.
The Perkins roadmap
Perkins offers a roadmap and technical support for programs aspiring to become models. This includes holistic program evaluation, leading to design and implementation of comprehensive and systematic training and coaching plans for staff and program leadership.
Quality educational programs require a committed leader who drives and supports the continual program improvement and growth. Perkins’ customized leadership development and support may include co-creating strategic plans/annual operating plans, partnering in supporting implementation and management and more.
Staff training and coaching
Our tailor-made, comprehensive and systematic staff training and coaching includes onsite, online and virtual skill-based trainings; mentoring and coaching; focused study visits; and more.
For the past 100 years Perkins has been welcoming visitors from around the world to share and learn. We invite you to join us on our historic campus in the greater effort to ensure all children, including those with disabilities, are given access to quality education.
Katie HollandExecutive Director of Perkins International
“In every region of the world, Perkins partners with parents, schools and governments to meet children where they are. At home, in community programs, in the health system, in public or private schools, Perkins makes sure these children are seen and we help create or connect the services to keep them on a path to learning.”
For the past two years, 3 mothers of children with multiple, complex disabilities have been taking virtual courses provided by Perkins International Academy in Brazil. Now, they are ready to receive their official Perkins certification.
Help us ensure that highly-trained professionals and transformative educational opportunities will always be there when children need them most. Support Perkins International and be a part of #ThePerkinsEffect.
